If you would ask me what is the most used piece of furniture in my household, I would say, without even thinking, the coffee table. You see, a coffee table is not just for serving coffee to your guests when they come to visit, it's more than that. A coffee table needs to hold books, magazines, food, drinks and decorations. When you come tired from work and you want to stretch your legs a little in front of the TV, don't tell me that the good old coffee table is not coming in handy because I won't believe you.
Since this piece if furniture is so important in every household, here are some things that you should keep in mind when you decide to buy a new coffee table. Enjoy!
Before you decide to go for a coffee table, you have to decide its function in the room. If you need some extra storage, you can choose a coffee table with drawers, or if you have a larger family and you know that everyone will gather near the table at night for some family games, you could go for a larger table. Whatever you do, just pick the table that fits best the functionality you'll need inside your room and don't forget that coffee tables should be the same height as the surrounding seating.
There are many coffee table style available on the market, so you also need to determine which style fits your tastes and your home decor, because you wouldn't want to pick something that's not a match with your other furniture. If you would like to give the room a more open feel, go for a table with a glass top, that way the table will blend with the decor and it will offer you the feeling of extra space.
When deciding on the colour, you are able to select almost any colour you adore. Don't hesitate to try any bold colour just like red, green and orange. The trick is to avoid using a gentle colour that can be very easily got scraped as well as discoloured.
Nowadays, coffee tables come in such trendy models, that they look more like a work of art than a simple table.

Also, don't forget that the best rule when buying a coffee table is to make sure the table works for your space as well as for your aesthetic.
